The Ukrainian National Federation of Canada (UNF of Canada) wishes to express its deep concern and equivocally opposes the adoption of the Draft Law on Principles of the State Language Policy (“Draft Law” June 5, 2012) by the Ukrainian Verhovna Rada.

This Draft Law contravenes The Constitution of Ukraine, which clearly indicates that the Ukrainian language is the State language of Ukraine. By allowing the Draft Law to proceed, it will allow the Russian language, which already has significant influence and usage, to encroach further on all spheres of Ukrainian daily life.

The protection of the Ukrainian language is imperative; the Russian language does not need special status in Ukraine.

The UNF of Canada (est. 1932) a member organization of both the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the Ukrainian World Congress, supports their positions calling for the ceasing of debate on the Draft Law and maintaining Ukrainian as the only state language. We strongly urge all to sign the petition in this regard organized by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.
